June 8, 2022 — MinXray continues to enhance the diagnostic capabilities of its digital radiography systems with the addition of qXR Automated Chest X-ray AI Solution from Qure.ai. The new AI software can detect and localize 30 chest X-ray abnormalities including TB and changes indicative of COVID-19 infections.
Available on the CMDR Series portable digital radiography systems and the Impact battery-powered portable digital radiography system, the qXR module is loaded directly on the system laptop, with no additional hardware required. X-ray exposure to AI report interpretation occurs in less than 60 seconds. Both systems also include qTrack from Qure.ai, an end-to-end disease management tool that specializes in respiratory disease such as COVID-19 and TB.
“qXR is being used worldwide for TB screenings,” said Mike Cairnie, MinXray’s Director of Global Sales. “We see that automated chest X-ray reads have become a valuable diagnostic tool, helping more doctors fast-track confirmation of TB in patients. With the prevalence of TB and a lack of physicians, who are needed to interpret chest X-rays in a timely manner, AI increases the capacity for faster and earlier detection.”
As a chest X-ray screening tool, qXR can detect signs of pulmonary, hilar, and pleural tuberculosis. The artificial intelligence algorithm for qXR is trained to detect not only classic primary pulmonary TB, but also atypical manifestations. It can also be used to screen for COPD, lung malignancies in high-risk populations and certain cardiac disorders.
MinXray’s Impact with qXR AI Solution offers a complete battery-powered digital radiography system in a single, portable package. This compact system includes MinXray’s TR90BH battery-powered X-ray generator, wireless CsI Flat Panel DR Detector and laptop with MinXView DICOM 3.0 compliant image acquisition software with qXR from Qure.ai. The system is easily transported to remote locations without available power and total system setup is less than one minute.
MinXray’s CMDR.CW.120.S with qXR AI Solution is a complete portable digital radiography system that includes MinXray’s most powerful X-ray generator, the HF120/60HPPWV PowerPlusÔ or HF100H+. It comes with a wireless or tethered CsI Flat Panel DR Detector and a laptop with MinXView DICOM 3.0 compliant image acquisition software with Qure.ai’s qXR; all mounted on MinXray’s rugged XGS stainless steel portable stand. The system is easily transported as required for portable imaging with total system setup taking less than one minute.
MinXray’s portable imaging systems are the preferred choice for global health programs, military use and other mobile medical applications. International medical specialists who work in remote or austere locations can bring superior diagnostic imaging capabilities directly to their patients, even under the most challenging conditions.
